If you want to spend one hour (in a very pleasant in-depth interview) helping a master thesis student working on social media and privacy, @oneironaut is still looking for Fediverse users to interview.

He might be especially interested in cooperative members' perspectives.


Hello mastodon people!

@oneironaut is doing a masters thesis on alternative social networks and privacy.

If you could lend half an hour to an hour to talk, I'm sure it would help a lot!

charity, politics, economics 

@qcat @socialskeleton Thank you guys! Much appreciated, really :)

If anyone is interested just shoot me a toot and we'll figure out the details!

@socialskeleton @oneironaut As one of the participants in the study, I endorse this message

Good morning. The time is 6:49 AM, Central Standard. My friend @oneironaut is in need of about five respondents who would be willing to chat about their experience with social media, privacy, and Mastodon. He is sourcing information for his Master's thesis.

I can personally recommend a chat, as he is very kind and easy to speak with. He hopes to wrap up interviews by the end of the week, so if you feel like making a friend and having an interesting chat, send him a message!

@Shawshank @nilanjanaroy
It occurs to some to simply never visit any of those sites or submit to their abuses.

@Shawshank One of my favourite pieces on this subject, by Hossein Derakshan. He was jailed as a political prisoner in Iran. When he was freed six years later, the world and the web had changed beyond recognition.


I did an interview with @oneironaut yesterday for his research project. In case you get approached by him, I can vouch that it's not a scam or spearphishing attempt 😉

alrighty! new blog post on language acquisition from a dialectical materialist perspective!

be warned, this is a fairly academic post...


Hei mastodontit, @oneironaut tekee tutkimusta Mastodonin käyttäjistä. Olisiko teistä haastateltaviksi? Kyseessä on noin puolen tunnin puhelu verkon yli yksityisyyteen, vaihtoehtoisiin sosiaalisiin medioihin ja digitaaliseen/datan lukutaitoon liittyen. Kielenä englanti.

Kiinnostuneet voivat olla yhteydessä suoraan häneen. Auttakaa tiedettä!

#introduction #reintroduction

I'm Alraune, and I used to be on cybre.space, and witches.town before that. I've moved here to focus on my passions, and not get caught up in the many stressors of the fediverse. I'm here to chill, post art, and have nice conversations with nice people.

I'm a 3D artist, and like to write about games, and design concepts for them in spare time. Slowly learning code to do most of the work of gamedev myself. Also I'm a weird art goth.

Here's some of my stuff:

Time for my #introduction i guess !

I'm currently the french-speaking mod of this server, along side @LuigiEsq, @citrustwee and @sociallyeleanor!

Donc vous pouvez me parler en anglais aussi...

You can send me a toot anytime, I'll do my best to answer.

I'm very much into #freesoftware, #freeparties, and just free stuff in general 🥳

My official emojo is :blobcatcoffee:

Hello! I'm on the lookout for an online survey tool, one that would (hopefully) be both free and ethical... is surveymonkey really the way to go?

I've got a general announcement to make, hope some of ya'll will be down to help :)
